Maddie's 3rd Annual Build-A- Bear Party

Maddie is looking forward to throwing her 4th Annual Build-A-Bear Party for the oncology patients at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) on Giving Tuesday, December 3, 2019. Last year, Maddie was delighted to give out nearly 200 bears to patients, thanks to the generosity of donors and with the support of the Our Lady of Good Counsel, Knights of Columbus Council #15658. This year she would like to continue the tradition and provide teddy bears to more of her friends fighting cancer at CHOP. She is seeking your support in this endeavor! Every donation received will put smiles on the faces of these little warriors!

*Corporate Sponsors will be recognized at the event
